The Ultimate in “Keeping it Real”

Last night we watched the movie “What we did on our holiday“. It was the second time that I have seen it and I love it more and more. Through a brilliant and totally unpredictable story line, Billy Connolly and David Tennant at their best, and a cast of other actors who all do an amazing job (especially the children), this cleverly written British comedy, to me, is the ultimate in why we need to be “keeping it real”.

With layer upon layer upon layer of reasons, consequences, twists and turns, though hilariously funny, it is also deeply emotional with some very strong messages; Life is short, wearing masks and keeping up appearances is taxing and totally not worth it, and no one wins, least of all those who pretend the most.

Movies like this inspire me and remind me that transparency is the way to go at every level. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favour and watch it, ….but bring the tissue box and be ready to laugh like you haven’t laughed in a long time!

(…and with so much Scottish blood running through my veins, that didn’t hurt the experience either …stunning scenery and so many threads running through it, up there on my all time best list).
